.m. this meeting last night came after word of a potential deal and a pretty big deal after word of a potential deal really stole the headlines yesterday afternoon and overnight. this would be, as i said, a pretty big deal. $3 trillion in deficit savings over ten years. and we only have a rough sketch of it. what is interesting, don, as you said, the white house is shooting this down. they say there is no deal. we heard jay carney shoot this down yesterday. the speaker's office is saying there is no deal but we have from congressional sources who are speaking on anonymity there is a framework. at 10:00 a.m. we will detail what the sources are telling us is in this potential agreement. >> only 10 1/2 days. thank you very much. we will be coming back to you throughout the day. >>> among an already crowded field of gop presidential candidates, a new cnn/orc poll suggests that texas governor rick perry may want to throw his hat into the ring too. mr. paul steinhauser joins us live from washington. >> rick perry is thinking about jumping into the white house and could do it. stay tuned on that. the
of some instruments that could -- showing, you know, trouble in the lending market. >> the big question is, will washington let that happen, and right now that answer is not any clearer than it was yesterday morning. we begin with breaking news, though. this titanic struggle that's continued to go on right now to end the debt crisis before next tuesday's deadline. here's a live look at the capitol where overnight, infighting among republicans forced house speaker john boehner to yank his debt bill. they thought there was going to be a vote last night. there is hope he will try to pass it again today. in four hours the speaker will again sit down with fellow republicans and again try to entice just a handful of hardline conservatives to fall in line. >> the bill's not perfect. i never said it was perfect. nobody in my caucus believes it's perfect. but what this bill reflects is a sincere, honest effort to end this crisis in a bipartisan way to send it to the senate where it can receive action. >> now the speaker's bill would cut $900 billion from the budget over ten years in exchange for a

probing with the white house the possibility of a big deal that would be nearly $4 trillion in deficit reduction and include $800 billion in added tax revenues over the next ten years. if he goes this route, i am told he will face a revolt from his republicans on the house including his fellow leaders including kevin mccarthy, i'm told he is still considering it even though it's risky. >> treasury secretary tim geithner joins me now. he would have to manage the chaos if the united states defaults for the first time in history. secretary geithner, thank you for being here. well, you just heard what jonathan said about what'ss on the table. is it possible that there will be a framework deal in place by 4:00 p.m. this afternoon. >> i hope so. again, both leaders recognize they're running out of time. they need to get this process moving in the house by monday night to achieve that deadline. they need to have a framework that they know with complete confidence will pass both houses of congress and is acceptable to the president and that should happen today. >> you think it can happen befor
for a lot more spending cuts later on. they are running out of room to cut. you will remember the big spending bill earlier this year cut tens of billions of dollars. so if you take a step back and you look at the entire forest there's a lot of spending cuts going on. lot of real spending cuts democrats are arguing that they are going to hurt a lot of people. so those certainly are accounting tricks. in terms of that last little margin to get to the point where they are cutting more than they are raising the debt ceiling which is what republican leaders wanted to do, they needed to rely on some creative use of cbo accounting methods. >> right. this is also interesting, though. even if he does get john boehner, that is, the house, even if he does get the conservatives to fall in lynn and go ahead and vote for this, there seems to be question about whether it will get out of the senate. have you 53 senators, two independents, included who said they are not going to support boehner's proposal. now we are looking at another proposal perhaps harry reid's proposal which the cbo also downgra
reporter dovetails neatly with our big question tonight. keeping them honest, if a strong majority of americans is telling washington they want a deal on the debt crisis, they want these guys to compromise with the other side, they want a mix of spending cuts and tax increases. then why isn't washington getting the mage? we've got new polling that says all of that. and this is important. recent polling may also explain why we haven't got an deal yet. we'll tell you what we're talking about. in any case, americans are speaking out today. >> good morning, speaker boehner's office. how may i help you? >> a summer avalanche of phone calls hitting the capitol. president obama asked for it in his address to the nation last night. here it is. house switchboard today getting nearly double the volume of normal phone calls, house speaker baine er's office reporting as many as 300 people on hold for as long as an hour. online the same story. site unavailable. server busy. we found better than one in three congressional web sites either slow or down entirely from all the volume. also multiple

-term deal. let's look for the big fix. the president says, luke, let's go for the big fix and now the republicans are going, wait a minute. what gives? luke. >> politics is the art of the possible. a lot of folks on capitol hill feel right now that a short-term solution is the only thing possible because of the eight-day time window that you mentioned. that being said, there are two very different plans which you talked about in the introduction which are going through capitol hill right now. speaker boehner plan is going to have an extension, which gets us through the wipter. i'm told that speaker boehner's going to brief his house republican conference at 2:00 p.m. about the details of that plan. won't get extremely specific. then for all intensive purposes it looks from discussions i've had with certain aides that you can see as early as wednesday a house of representatives votes on speaker boehner's plan. harry reid is going to go his own way with a $2.7 trillion reduction plan across the board. both of these contessa are different than any of the grand bargains. reid's extend

[laughter] i'm an atheist, and in dangerousville, ohio, in 2008 you asserted that no organization receiving taxpayer funds would be able to discriminate in hiring or firing based on a person's religion. however, you have not rescinded the executive order that permits this type of discrimination. in a time of economic hardship when it's difficult for a person to get a job based on her skills, what would you say to a woman who has been denied employment because of her religion or lack of religious beliefs by a taxpayer-funded organization? >> well, this is a very difficult issue, but a more narrow one than i think might be implied. it's very straightforward that people shouldn't be discriminated against for race, gender, sexual orientation and/or religious affiliation. what has happened is that there has been a carve outdating back to president clinton's presidency. for religious organizations in their hiring for particular purposes. and this is always a tricky part of the first amendment. on the on

here about a potential big deal, something that would reduce the deficit by $3 to $4 trillion over the next decade and under that plan you would see some cuts to discretionary spending right up front. then changes to entitlements, things like medicare and social security kick in a little later and also some changes to the tax code that would kick in later, things like rolling back tax breaks for wealthy americans and large corporations. now we're also hearing about the possibility of getting rid of that deduction for home mortgage interest. here's what's interesting, thomas. to your point earlier in the week, republicans were really upset over the possibility of changing the tax code, potentially increasing taxes. well, yesterday it was democrats who were concerned about the possibility that the president was maybe giving in on entitlement reform and not insisting on enough changes to the tax code. white house officials insist that is not the case. they say the president is dedicated to making sure that there is new revenue from changes to the tax code. so that's where we stand rig
